Ohh, this gives me a clue. First off, to answer your questions - no, there are no filters applied, and I've tried a hard reset (battery pull?) several times to no avail.
The clue you gave though was the filters. Recently I did DELETE four categories while in the Tasks application. Some of those filters were for categories that I only used in my Contacts. I'm looking under filters now on Contacts and the categories are gone from there as well! I tried adding them back - that didn't help. I shut off and did a hard reset, now they are all found!
It appears that Contact and Task Categories are hermetically linked and deleting them from Tasks screws up the Contacts app. Grrr!! :(
RIM should fix this - very annoying.
Thanks for brainstorming with me.
